He questioned whether the <br />Commission felt other parts of the County would be interested in the 911 system, and he suggested a study <br />to determine the feasibility. Mrs. Stanton recalled that there was very little positive response in the <br />rural areas when they were approached on some time ago. The Commission was in agreement that the <br />County should not become involved in the funding. A meeting will be held at the Fargo City Hall on <br />January 23rd to further discuss the 911 system. <br />Discussion was held on the 1985 proposed salary plan for County employees. Mrs. Stanton felt that <br />there are some inequities in the pay plan and that no salary determination has been made for the Social <br />Services employees or for the Department Heads. Another area that concerns her is the proposed pay cuts <br />over a 4 -year period for six employees. Mr. Wieland stated that 5% was set aside for Social Services for <br />the Department Head to recommend back to the Commission what the employee increases should be. It was <br />decided that each Commissioner should talk to Tom Jensen, Social Services Director, before next Tuesday <br />to get his recommendations. <br />Mr. Wieland and Mr. Eckert agreed that there are some inequities in the proposed pay plan, and they <br />suggested dealing with them after the basic plan is adopted. They stated that until an,alternate plan is <br />shown to them, they would support the present proposal.

Scott Krueger was requested to post a notice so that employees could attend, and the matter will be <br />placed on the agenda again for January 29th. <br />Scott Krueger reported that he spoke with a representative of the Hay Group Consulting Firm <br />regarding an evaluation of County Department Heads. He was informed that the methods used by the Hay <br />Group match those used by the County Department Heads' Salary Committee when employee positions were <br />evaluated. The Hay Group would charge up to $7,200 to evaluate Department Heads, and the process would <br />take 4 -6 weeks to complete. Mr. Wieland stated that he would not be in favor of spending this amount of <br />money, and Mrs. Stanton stated that she would first like to see the results of the Task Force study. <br />Scott Krueger submitted a report marking the end of his first year at Cass County as Administrative <br />Assistant. The Commissioners commended him for his work. <br />Mr. Wieland moved and Mrs. Stanton seconded to adopt the following RESOLUTION REQUIRING THE <br />APPROVAL FOR THE USE OF AMOUNTS HELD IN THE RESERVE FUND MAINTAINED BY THE COUNTY AUDITOR: On roll call <br />vote, the motion carried unanimously. <br />WHEREAS, the Cass County presently maintains a Reserve Fund for the Health District, the County <br />Jail and the County Poor Funds in order to ensure that the Cass County will have monies available at all <br />times to make expenditures necessary for the maintenance of the Cass County's facilities and the welfare <br />of its residents should the Cass County's revenues be at any time temporarily insufficient for such <br />purposes, and <br />WHEREAS, the Cass County deems it necessary to ensure the application of the monies on deposit in <br />the Fund solely for such purposes. <br />6220 <br />Appt. of Nils Buring- <br />rud to North Cass WRD <br />St.Atty. to investi- <br />gate problem with <br />Shff. on medical bill <br />of prisoners <br />Clerk of Court auth. <br />to hire temporary <br />employee for 6 mos. <br />Fargo Sanitarian <br />presented environ- <br />mental report <br />911 emergency tele- <br />phone system disc. <br />1985 salary proposal <br />discussed evening <br />meeting to be held <br />with employees <br />Salary of County <br />Dept.
